For those of a certain age William West Anderson aka Adam West will always be the one and only Batman.  In the period when color TV was new and exciting once a week we got colorful sets, colorful villains and even colorful comic strip 'balloon' titles such as "Pow" and "Bam" superimposed over the point of contact where Batman's fist was striking the jaw of the Jokers henchmen. It was tongue-in-cheek absurdity at it's best and in living color.
